TORONTO – The bail hearing for one of two men accused of plotting to attack a Via Rail train has been postponed.
A three-day hearing for Raed Jaser has been rescheduled for Nov. 20.
His lawyer, John Norris, says the delay was the result of a surety being out of the country.
Jaser’s co-accused, Chiheb Esseghaier, was also in court in Toronto today where a date for a joint judicial pre-trial with Jaser was set for Dec. 9.
Esseghaier is looking for a lawyer who will follow the Qu’ran, not the Criminal Code.
The prosecutor said the chances of that happening “are slim.”
